 SAN ANTONIO -- A 20-year-old woman, facing 10 years to life in prison, pleaded guilty Wednesday to prostituting a girl just five years younger than herself.

Amber Doak admitted to Chief Judge Fred Biery that she knowingly enticed a 15-year-old San Antonio girl to engage in commercial sex last August, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. Doak is charged with one count of sex trafficking of children.

In court, the defendant confirmed that she took photos of the young girl so that her two co-defendants, 38-year-old Marcus Wright and Malcom Copeland, 21, could upload them to the Internet and advertise the underage victim on a popular adult-escorts website.

Doak went on to admit that she handled the incoming inquiries from prospective clients who responded to the online advertisement, and would even accompany Wright and Copeland when transporting the minor to various addresses for sex.

Doak is scheduled to be sentenced in San Antonio on Sept. 12, 2014, just over a year after the alleged exploitation.

Jury selection for Wright and Copeland is set for April 7th; Judge Biery will preside over the proceedings. Both are currently in federal custody.
